1  Non-emergency calls have declined by 8% over the last five fiscal years. Non-emergency calls are answered within the Emergency Communication Center by the same staff who answer 9-1-1 calls. Non-emergency calls generally take longer to process. Their volume and duration do of course have an impact on call taker availability. The impacts are regulated through the application of call queuing and prioritization within the phone system. 9-1-1 calls are prioritized to be answered ahead of non-emergency. Call taker profiles adjustments are managed based on call volumes whereby call takers will be designated to answer only emergency calls.
